    how many wicks do you use in your speroid?

    Hey guys!

    to all the spheroid users out there! how many wicks do you have in your coil?

    I usually did a double wick but tried a single wick (Silica from Vinny) can't tell if there is much of a difference.

    Just wondering what your thoughts are

    MMM

    And FM, would never rob a grave hahahaha so your Spheroid is safe, i will go pay tribute to it though :P

    mine is a double wick - the lasso style - big loop on one side with the two short ends at the other.

    awesome! thanks for the input guys! and Bullos....you gonna have to pry it from my cold dead hands! hahahahahahahaha

    I tried a single wick and just didn't keep up, or i thought so it might have been in my head. But i went back to double wick about 3 hours later, and it was all good again.

    and again Bullos....gotta kill me first. I now have 3 in my possession not 2. Need more :P my precious!

    thing to bear in mind .. a 3mm wick is equivalent to 9 1mm wicks in volune.
    area = π r^2

    so a 1mm wick is about 0.75sq mm
    a 3mm wick is about 7 sq mm

    so don't expect a triple 1mm to perform like your 3mm jobbies.

    phoenix clone rebuildable i got is running 6 x 1mm wicks.

    was looking at people drilling out air holes and a post i replied to elsewhere, i thought i would add that ..

    airholes follow the same rule .. a 3mm airhole is equivalent to 9 1mm airholes, so don't drill out a 1mm to 3mm for 3 times the air, its 9 times..

    wire gauges, a change of 6 gauge is a doubling or halving of gauge, doubling wire diameter is one quarter the resistance. it follows that a change of 3 gauge is double/half resistance..

    so twisting 2 wires together is like increasing its diameter by 1.4 times resistance wise but doubles the surface area.

    maximum current capacity follows the area/resistance .. so a changes of 6 gauge will handle 4 times the current. 32 gauge handles about 2.5A in air .. eg, post to wick.
